People are extremely busy in today's world.  There seems, even, to be pressure to be busy.  There are expectations to be successful in work and in private life.  There are even expectations placed on our physical appearance.  All of these expectations create a lot of pressure.  What does this pressure do to us?  Are we truly busy, or merely striving for the trappings of busyness?  Most importantly, why are we so busy?  What drives us?

Join us in a conversation on busyness and ambition at the Veritas Forum at Tilburg University.
